"Happy Fall Y'all" Stampers Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Stampers Showcase Blog hop, celebrating the change of season in the northern hemisphere with the theme of "Happy Fall Y'all".

This hop was a two level challenge for me, 1. we don't really "get into" autumn here in Australia, and 2. fall colours are not my "go to", I'm more of a pink and floral kinda gal. After much contemplation I decided to do watercolor stamping.

I used dauber to apply a mixture of colours to the solid leaf stamps, then spritzed the water colour paper and the ink on the stamp, then stamped, then repeated until all the leaves were done, then let dry. 

Next I tore scrap paper to mask the leaves then stamped the Birch background and sponged the edges before "roughing them up with scissors, I also added some splatters of colour with an aqua painter. Lastly adding some die cut branches behind the sentiment from Accented blooms.
